          Curriculum and Assessment 

          Stage 4 Curriculum

          We are constantly endeavouring to broaden and deepen our KS4 curriculum offer to give opportunities for all abilities and interests. We offer options that we believe have clear pathways into KS5 and life outside school.

          Students are able choose 4 options, one of which has to be Geography, History or French. The qualifications offered are usually GCSEs, but sometimes equivalent qualifications are offered such as BTECs. The offer changes from year to year depending on the needs of the cohort and the staffing available.

          Assessment and Reporting at Key Stage 4

          Students undertaking Key Stage 4 courses will be assessed using GCSE grades 9-1 and BTEC grades Distinction*- Pass.  Students’ targets are generated through a national data base called FFT (Fisher Family Trust). This body uses students KS2 SATs along with numerous contextual factors. The targets are aspirational but also realistic.

          Progress will be reported at least three times in a year. The progress report will state a student’s predicted grade for the end of Year if they continue working as they are. Parents will be invited to a full parents’ evening in Yr. 10 and 11 where they can discuss their child’s progress in more detail with individual subject teachers. Parents are encouraged to contact individual subject teachers or the Head of Year if they have any concerns about the progress their child is making.

          Extensive analysis of all the data collected each half term is undertaken by the senior team, and any underachievement is identified and discussed with heads of department via Raising Attainment and Progress meetings (RAP meetings).

          Below is a rough guide to the link between the old letter grading system and the new numeric system. The DfE have benchmarked the 7 as an A and 4 as a C.

          9= A**

          8= A*

          7=A

          6=B+

          5=C+/B-

          4=C

          3=D/E+

          2=E-/F+

          1=G

          Students’ targets are generated through a national data base called FFT (Fisher Family Trust). This body uses students KS2 SATs along with numerous contextual factors. The targets are aspirational but also realistic. To make it very clear where your child is aiming we will report this GCSE target to you every time we send the Progress Report home.
